I saw Our Gang in around 1989 by accident at the Anthrax in CT.  A bunch of my Albany friends and myself made the 2.5 hour trek out there to see/support our local friends No Outlet who were also on the bill. I recall being blown away by O.G., and until the last few years never realized they were from the NYC borough of Staten Island. Oddly enough Our Gang never released a proper record back in the day. Members went on to play in Citizen's Arrest, Born Against, etc.
A few years ago my friend Charles and I started talking about how much we thought they needed a proper release. Charles knew some of those guys and got in touch, and asked them if they'd do a discography record with us. They were into it, and months later the LP came out on our label Jack Roy Records. Here is a proper rip of a proper record. The LP contains both the 1988 and 89 demo's both recorded at Don Fury's. If you need an actual copy, get at me, I have a few left.

For a sample:


  1. great record, great band! thanks a ton man.
